Hailed As The Most Literary Quotation
The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations is as impressive,
erudite, enjoyable, and educational a tome as you might expect from Oxford.
It's the sort of undertaking the press does very well. The first such
dictionary, as compiled by Oxford, was published in 1953, and it's been
tweaking, modifying, and updating it ever since. This new edition, the fifth,
offers well over 20,000 quotations from more than 3,000 authors. Responding to
correspondence from their readers, Oxford has restored some material from past
editions, such as the proverbs and nursery-rhymes section. There's a much more
inclusive attention to sacred texts of world religions, and 2,000 quotations
are brand new. Search through all the quotes with this CD.
iFinger engine is user friendly and unobtrusive. It
runs seamlessly in the background when you start Windows.
